All Creatures Great and Small - Cutie Pie DT

Monday again...yay...I am on annual leave this week and Martin is off too so lots of fun ahead...more of that later!!

It's time for our June Challenge at

new style blog badge

where the theme is All Creatures Great and Small. 
Here is what I did using an image from our Sponsor, Bugaboo.

I sat and scratched my head while trying to plan this card and eventually used one of the old LOTV sketches, as I often do if mojo is lacking.  I used a new paper pad from Craftwork Cards, Julie Loves -  Daisy,Ditsy and Dotty Bundle and coloured the ever so cute bear, with Promarkers, to match. The flower was made using an old Die-namics Layered Rose set, matching card candi was stickled and I used my trusty Mama Elephant Mini tags dies & Mini Messages. You must have some cute creatures in your stash so it would be great to have you play along!!

So, back to our fun week...don't laugh!! We have a skip arriving later today as we have all sorts of accumulated farm stuff that is just too big to dispose of at the local Recycling Centre so it will be fun filling that!! On Wednesday we have a digger coming to do a bit of groundwork so that will be a couple of hours entertainment too and I can bark orders!! The rest of the week we are planning to eat out, walk the dogs (Martin) and ride Surprise (me), and generally enjoy some much needed time together that is not dictated by our watches.

Hope you have a fun filled week!!

  15. Sarah this is one adorable card, cute image and awesome papers.xx [aNNie]

  16. This is so gorgeously sweet! Really cute image matching those oh, so pretty papers perfectly. Wonderful flower and the tag, well, that's just gone on my extensive wish list. I've resisted the times you've used it before but you've just worn me down :D.
    It's silly but I would get excited when a skip would arrive at my home and get rid of all the c**p, sorry, rubbish and leave everything tidy (ish, I'm not a tidy person). My Uncle decided to hire a digger to dig a pond buy enjoyed using it so much that he bought it and ended up with a small lake! He had room as he lived in rural US. So have a fun filled week together doing exactly what you want to. Debra x
